Basics To Notice When Choosing Funeral Cards

When you find out that someone you know is grieving from a death in the family, your first reaction would probably to offer help. It is also normal to offer some kind of token to express your sympathy. Most people give flower baskets but you can also send funeral prayer cards instead.

Praying for the dead will be greatly appreciated by the family of deceased, especially if they are spiritual. You can also choose to offer something else such as a potted plant. This is a unique gift that can last forever, especially if it is planted in the garden of the deceased loved ones.

You can also have your words of sympathy etched onto a slab of stone. This is an unconventional offering but a nice one. It can be placed at the gravesite or in the family's garden as a life-long memorial for their loved one. Make sure that your quotation is a pleasant one that brings to mind happy memories of deceased.

You might want to create a photo album of the person who died and offer that to the family. Choose images that the deceased relatives have no copies of. At a time like this, those left behind often look for memorabilia of their loved one and a nice collection of pictures would be appreciated.

Brining trays of food is common custom and a considerate one if the family of the dead is hosting an after-burial reception. Your contribution can be helpful at a time when grieving family members would rather not bother with preparing food for guests. Choose non-perishable items that can last till the burial.

It is a nice gesture to give prayer cards during the wake or after the burial. You can offer a card with a bouquet of flowers. Present it in a pretty leatherette folder or in a picture frame with a stand.
